    Well I can not say for certain, only that it has happened a few times, I test it when I first put it all together then I get into the water and the card is not present. then On the surface I reset the card and all is well. I can only assume the card is getting bumped or else there is some other sort of random problem.

    If that happened with my Canon, Sealife, whatever - I'd send it in.

    Sailnaked,

    Send in your camera to have it looked at. Sounds like there might be an issue with the retaining spring that holds the card in place.

    Call 856 866-9191 and speak to our service techs for an RMA # to send it back with.

    Got the "card error" twice on my trip this past weekend when first turning the camera on underwater,
    even though it checked out fine before the dive. Very weird. The "reboot" worked each time -
    unfortunately the conditions were not great for shooting, and the one dive where there were
    some pics to take I didn't have the camera (long story).

    For the best dives, buy a camera, then leave it in the room. :eyebrow: Dead batteries also help. I'd once exhausted my DC500 battery right before the SS - and the marlin encounter.

    I just don't get card errors, other than one old card that went bad - and who knows why? Could have been me allowing it to get hot, whatever.

    For a case like this, I'd take a good card that has always worked in my Canon and switch the cards between cameras. If the card goes bad in the Canon, I send the in; if the good card goes bad in the Sealife, I sent that camera in; if it never happens again, frustrating good news. :)

    Diving the Daryaw on the St Lawrence on Sunday morning (my 75th!), and my LDS
    owner asked if I would take the "noobies" down, he wanted to check out a new
    "deep drift approach" with the grizzled vets on the trip. I opted to leave the camera,
    take a light, and pay more attention to my wife and two other divers making their
    first descent on her. Easy enough dive, very cool wreck if you get the chance,
    I dove her last year and did an extensive review with him before briefing my crew
    and jumping in.

    As for the card error, I'm going to pick up a new card before my next trip. I have a
    feeling that once you start getting these you keep getting them. If it happens with
    the new card, the camera will go back.
